Dr. Mercola refers to EMFs as the Tobacco of the 21st century for a good reason.

Harman’s case is one that really pulls at your heartstrings. At only 24 years old, she came into my office debilitated by brain fog, to the point she had to take medical leave from her job. At our first visit, she broke down with tears in her eyes in frustration and fear regarding her health. While we had to personalize her treatment to avoid reactions, ultimately she was free of all her symptoms in only 3-4 months. How? By healing her gut. This is a shining example of the gut-brain connection.

I have not been impressed with the data supporting gene testing, so I was curious to speak with a specialist in this area to air my concerns. I must admit that Dr. Joe Veltmann piqued my curiosity with his approach. He makes an interesting critique that much of today’s gene testing is more entertainment than it is informational. Fortunately, he does offer a testing option for those who want to pursue gene testing which he feels to be truly informational and able to impact one’s health. https://drruscio.com/?p=25808
